Kansas Office of Revisor of Statutes
In April 2001 and amended in March 2002, the Board adopted regulations relating to supervision of light-based medical treatments. The regulations require physicians to have written practice protocol agreements with those who use a light-based medical device to provide a professional service under their supervision. Treatments are required to be performed at a location where the supervising physician maintains a practice or while the physician is physically immediately available. Treatments performed while the physician is not physically present are required to be performed within written operating parameters. Person receiving treatment are required to give consent. This rule does not apply to phototherapy in treatment of hyperbilirubinemia or to a chiropractor engaging in lightbased physiotherapy.
